the past two years combined. meanwhile the united states government backing away from the spontaneous attack description by the administration's spokesmen and spokespersons over the past week about events in libya, events that led to the murder of ambassador christopher stevens and three other americans. fox news has confirmed from an intelligence source on the ground in benghazi that there was no significant or sizable demonstration of any kind in benghazi when the attacks on the consulate were launched. the white house has now apparently decided that the investigation may well lead to a different conclusion than the one the administration has been so certain about for almost a week. >> what i can tell you that we have provided information about what we believe was the precipitating cause of the protests and the violence based on the information that we have had available. there is an ongoing investigation. the fbi is investigating and, that investigation will follow the facts wherever they lead. lou: the libyan government, an intelligence source in benghazi, eyewitnesses in benghazi

, and that was one of the biggest decisions we've made, the united states was in a very tough situation at that time. neil: you were for bailing those others out, because of the whole supply? >> remember we actually testified on behalf of temporary help for gm and chrysler, we concluded, that if gm and chrysler, went into freefall, they could have taken down the industry and u.s. economy. neil: you don't think you would have survived that or toyota with plants here. >> we all would have been in real trouble. we did it, -- we could have really contributed to u.s. going from a recession. neil: that rescue of a good thing? >> it was the right thing to did at the time, but to your point, i am just so pleased that we did not access one dollar of taxpayer money, we were on a plan to create a viable ford way before that recession hit. neil: there seems to be a bigger macro picture to, that you know that is big government, about well not big government. many saying it has gone too far since, and we built a slippery slope. what do you think that that the government is too unwieldy, rescuing everyone. >> i co
. the defense minister pointed out we have best relations between israel and united states of the securities we have ever had. we have operation iron dome which allows the folks in israel to be protected from these rockets. i think it is one of those things that it is election year thing. connell: but the week of the u.n. general assembly, you don't think that's a fair political criticism from the other side? say hey listen, there's a lot going on here in the world, you should have sat down with them, you don't think that's fair? >> i don't think it's fair. he keeps good communications with the rest of the world. our relations with the rest of the world have been better than a long time. when i travel, people were very very pleased with what the administration was doing. they respect the president. look, we're in the last what 40 some days of a presidential campaign. that's the high priority. connell: let's talk about that a little bit before we let you go. the republicans would say look at the unemployment rate under president obama how it's stayed above 8%, this is quote unquote our year, we
the state of the economy than any other government reports we're getting. ashley: united states is one of the world's most economically free countries. think again. the cato institute says the u.s. dropped from the top 10 to 18th on the list in its annual report. coauthor ian vasquez will be our special guest ahead to explain that. 18th in economic --. tracy: we were 10th last year. he has got to tell us what is going on. time for stocks as we do every 15 minutes. we head down to nicole petallides on the floor of the new york stock exchange. nicole we're down about eight points right now? >> right. the truth is yesterday we gave back about 40 points. wee had two weeks in a row about gains. fed stimulus and bond buying extending low rates. everyone seems to be taking a bit of a breather. right now the dow is down as are s&p and nasdaq as well, all to the downside. down .1 or .2 of a percent. we have winners like apple which obviously broke new records. fedex has come under pressure. fedex once again is warning about a tough global economy. so they came out with their numbers today. they
been going in terms of violence, and also, he says this is not over yet because if the united states does not respond appropriately to his mind, which means punishing those involved with this film, he says these protests could continue. i said, what do you want to have dope to the filmmakers? he said, well, i'd like to see them tried in front of a sharia court meaning if they don't repent for insulting the prophet, he thinks they should be executed. that shows how quickly, simply how a jihadist leader talks about an anti-american protest brings out a few thousand people in front of the u.s. embassy. that shows the ground swell of anti-americanism now taking place in cairo. back to you. tracy: leeland, out in cay row, thank you very much. ashley: continuing with rising tensions in the middle east, oil traders growing more concerned as conflicts spread west to oil rich nigeria. phil flynn has more on this. are you concerned then, phil, what's going on in nigeria? >> i am right now. see, egypt doesn't produce a lot of oil, and because we built in good buffer of supply in case of a disru
, in the united states? plus the corporation is falling behind because their tax rates are going up. their businesses will go away. they will lose competitiveness. people will move, as you have just said. this is a disaster. there are things you can't see. you know, so let's say you're a surgeon and you don't want to pay 75% tax rate. so what you do, you cancel surgeries and go paint your own house, which takes away business from the painter. and the whole economy becomes inefficient. that is why, this is going to be a disaster for france. the whole world learned these kind of tax rates are highly unproductive. melissa: i don't know. they will have to watch closely to really learn that lesson because i'm not sure everybody takes that away. one of the biggest points whenever you do something like this it never brings in revenue they think it will going to. they think this will recoup 30 billion euro or $39 billion and help close the deficit next year. if you look at example. this was tried in oregon in 2010. it didn't bring the revenue they thought. tried the same experiment in illin

the united states of america. we discuss news the other day, the department of water and power is going to increase rates 10%. we are having a shortage of water. they are increasing their rates. there is actually no competition at all. i will give you an example. i paid $200 per month of my department of water and power bill to underwrite people who cannot afford to pay their own water bill in los angeles. it cost me $200 a month to help them out. ashley: you are very generous. >> i'm trying to help my daughter who is a school teacher and my son who sells cars. i'm helping them. there are a lot of people who help their kids. at the same temperament are helping everybody else. select the end of the month, you may be a little bit short. wait a minute, they charged charge me another $200 a month to deliver water and power to my house. i never turn on the light were never turned on the water spigot, i still get charged $200 per month just for the privilege of having water and power. ashley: stockton, san bernardino, mammoth lakes, on the verge of declaring bankruptcy or have declared bankru
you imagine senator rand paul filing a complaint with the supreme court of the united states challenging many things that president obama wants to do and the supreme court hearing those challenges? >> yes, i can-- >> that's very tempting. >> and we don't have that, that system here, we have something called stand in which makes it difficult for you to get the right to challenge the government. in germany, any other member of the government can challenge what the chancellor wants to do. they will probably rule tomorrow and as you said, they will probably permit the government to participate in this. if they don't. you would know better than i what will happen to the euro. >> that's europe. i don't understand why, look, in america, i've always been told that you can sue anybody for anything anytime. why can't any member of the government or any member of citizen of the united states sue the federal reserve and say, hey, we don't want you printing money like that, we don't think you should be. >> the supreme court has already permitted it. not this court, anyone on the court rig
the united states and its allies including in the arab world need to basically dismantle the network of salafists because they are waging a war against american interests. lori: the protest we're seeing in cairo, walid, plug that in for us. seems the anti-american sentiment is growing, it is snowballings do you agree. >> that is what the propaganda of jihadists want us to believe. these are civil societies rising up against america because of a movie. that is not the case. these are war rooms of networks that take people to the street. an individual wakes up angry against an american and goes throw a rock at an embassy. these are organized networks that want to channel anger in egypt against the united states. the government of egypt has a duty to protect our interests in the region. melissa: you say america has to disband band the network. is that even possible? how do we do that? >> there are multiple stages. stage number one the president of the united states and executive in power should call the president of egypt and ask mr. morsi to basically do his duty and protect our embass
